Thirsty Thursday: If I Could Drink, I Would

If I could drink, I'd be blotto right now. But since I can't, I'll share this depressing bit of lit for Thirsty Thursday.

Twelve-year-old Sabella Laaksonen looked up into the star-filled sky as she stood by the rental cabin beside Dark Lake in Eagle, Vermont on the last night of summer vacation, and made a wish.

“Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might have the wish I wish tonight. I wish I had a friend who I could tell my secrets to—a friend who would understand and like me for who I am, not who they think I could be if I just tried harder.”

Sabella had been raised to believe that if you are kind, others will be kind to you, but she found that others are only kind if they think you’re pretty, and nobody thought that Sabella was pretty.

That's all for this Thirsty Thursday. Feel free to share your links in the comments and I'll try to check them out and share them next time I do a Thirsty Thursday.

I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
